Orloff (Ohrloff), a common Mennonite village name which originated in Prussia and was transplanted to the Molotschna and Zagradovka settlements, Ukraine; Alexandertal and Am Trakt settlements, Samara; Barnaul and Omsk, Siberia; and Fernheim, Chaco, Paraguay. It is likely that the Russian Mennonite village names Orlovka and Orlovo (Memrik) are related to the German Orloff.
